Carrots Glazed with Cumin and Ginger

A touch of spice turns carrots into something wonderful. Not that there is anything wrong with carrots as they are – delicious to munch on, wonderful grated into salads, carrot soups are amazing, pickles are so good, even in dips they shine. They can be poached, roasted, sautéed, mashed, curried, pureed and steamed or boiled.

Glazing carrots is quite retro, but as everything old is new again, we are re-introducing some of the techniques of last century.
